7:24am
life and death. >> a recent study found that about 13% of vehicles on the road have at least one bald tire. some things never go out of style. service with a smile is one of them. cbs reporter joe ben dingt shows us -- benedict when it comes to keeping customers happy, one grandfather in santa anita stands alone. >>reporter: the chaos is constant inside this busy nordstrom's store, but on this end things take on a calmer tone. >> good morning. >>reporter: that's where you'll find ted standing tall, dressed to the nines, humming an old song that doesn't match the one blaring from the speaker and wearing a smile. this is my home right here. >>reporter: he is the store's greeter. >> they say can you help me. i said by all means, that's what i'm here for. >>reporter: in 200 stores nationwide, he is the only greeter employed by nordstrom's. >> the owner used to say good morning when people come in. >>reporter: a time his grandfather remembers.

7:44am
p.m. tonight. it's looking pretty good for the bay area and for sacramento where if you're looking for something to do this fine saturday, head east out into the central valley, sunny and hot for the california state fair. too warm for you? come over to the city. you'll be plenty cool. for america's cup 2013, 62 degrees. it'll be cool and breezy. here's what's on tap, a little bit warmer today. i'll show you why in a minute. mid morning clearing inland and a little bit cooler than on monday. what's happening is that the high pressure that's been over the desert southwest is moving a little bit toward the bay area and so as the edge of this begins to head toward the city, the pressure comes up in the atmosphere and as a result we get a slight weekend warmup. low pressure staying well to the north in the gulf of alaska and as a result today the numbers will rise, not dramatically, but we'll pick up a couple of degrees. forecast for oakland at 73, it's two degrees above average. average for this time of the year is 71. and then in livermore 90 degrees is the forecast high. that's about two degrees above average for this time in july.
7:45am
so we're actually above average readings for the most part. san jose 83, right about where they should be. down in the south bay the forecast looks like this, in morgan hill, it'll be pretty warm, 80 degrees. you go over the coast range, over skyline boulevard, half moon bay and 63 degrees the forecast there, 64 pacifica. east bay today it'll be on the warm side, near 90 degrees at livermore, 91 at walnut creek, wine country, napa8443s,. oakland today 73, as we mentioned, and then up in the far north we're looking at 76 at windsor. but you go up 101 to yukia, 90 degrees. plenty warm for us. we're looking for temperatures to increase today, tomorrow and then begin to cool it off on monday. monday, tuesday and wednesday finds things moderating in the mid-80s inland, 70s around the bay and the usual low clouds at the coast. and that's going to do it.
7:46am
